Shruthi Rajasekar, composition and voice student at Princeton University. Shruthi bridges two upbringings as an American and as a Hindu. We will perform her piece "Devotee" which she wrote to "create a piece with a spiritually unified message."
"The process of writing this piece made me a better 'devotee': a greater believer
in the power of music to bring us together."
Danbi Lee, recent graduate from Indiana University and Ithaca transplant will perform "Chaconne" by Sophie Gubaidulina.
Women's Works members and guests present works by women composers in honor of Women's History Month.

Women's Works is a circle of musicians who gather to celebrate and perform works written by women. The entire year is spent collecting music and readings, soliciting funds, organizing publicity, and finally rehearsing and performing these beautiful works. Our mission is to promote awareness of women composers, past and present, by performing their music and putting it into a historical context.
